When you finally say that you’ve fully understood someone, you’re wrong, because everyone is too unique to be completely understood. I have a friend who is born the same day and same year as me. According to the horoscopes and zodiac predictions, we should be similar. Although we may have the same feelings and same emotions to start out with (ex: reacting the same way to certain situations, feeling the same when put into the same situation), the way we have been brought up has affected us along the way in our lives. Every bit of conversation and encounter with others is part of our own life experience and that led us to different paths. Even the tiniest, most trivial experiences makes us unique human beings. When she has trouble sometimes, I help her and I think I have her figured out exactly, like how she thinks. But, right when I think I got it exactly right, she tells me what I said is NOT what she really thinks. Then, I hit a brick wall. “How can I not understand you when we are so similar?” is what I thought.

After this experience, I realized that everyone is really different, because everything we do and everything we encounter shapes us little by little until we reach the persons we are today. So don’t attempt to fully understand someone or think that you’ve got them figured out because they’re just like that person you met a couple of years ago, because everyone is different. Every single person is having their own unique journey.
